Dreams where I'm desperate for a drink. Common?

It's been 3 years since I last had a drink but it concerns me I keep having consistent dreams where I'm desperately searching for alcohol or I'm drunk. In the dream I feel terrible guilt for relapsing and know this time it will kill me.

Does anyone else have these dreams? I wonder if it's my unconscious mind reminding me how close to death I came .

I think it's because you are going through a stressful turmoil in your life at this point after having turned your life around three years ago. and as you said you are so worried about it .

I think it's your subconscious mind reminding you and backing up what your conscient mind is already telling you and also at the same time warning you.

It sounds like a very sensible unconscious mind too!

I hope you have got your job back or found one with more symapthetic management

All the Best,
